7 External Comments About AISI Taylor & Tubianosa (2001) Alberta’s AISI (along with programs in Ontario and Quebec) are exemplars of how provinces can link assessment and school improvement to transforming results into plans of action. Learning Commission (2003) Major investments should continue to be made in educational research, particularly active, classroom-based research through the highly successful Alberta Initiative for School Improvement. Berliner (2004) AISI – what a lovely, and sensible, research-based idea you all have put into effect, namely, that to improve schools at the local level, one should base plans on the perceived needs of those at the local level. Reeves (2005) AISI is the gold standard of improvement models. Clear message to universities and support systems that claims of “research” are not worthy of the name if they do not reflect student achievement results.
